The COVID-19 crisis impacts everyone in Berwyn, but it is most devastating to our neighbors who work minimum-wage jobs or who are ineligible for government assistance due to their immigration status. Those needing help include many of Awake’s program participants and community volunteers, who have reached out to us for help. Awake responded by creating the Berwyn Community COVID-19 Assistance Fund to support our friends and neighbors with $500 mini-grants to help with rent, utilities and other necessities. At this time we are no longer taking applications for grants, but we do still have families that are awaiting funding. If you are able, please join with us in providing funds to Berwyn families in need.
